Millennials at Work: The Can Do, Will Do Generation
By 2020, Millennials will make up 35% of the global workforce. ManpowerGroup’s global research powered by Reputation Leaders found Millennials work as hard, if not harder than other generations, and are optimistic about their careers. They prioritize money, people and purpose. With career ultra-marathons ahead, Millennials are focused on developing the skills to ensure their employment security and build a “career for me.”

ManpowerGroup commissioned thought leadership consultancy Reputation Leaders to conduct a quantitative global study of 19,000 working Millennials and 1,500 hiring managers across 25 countries to understand what Generation Y wants now and in the future, and help individuals and organizations succeed in this new world of work. Millennials were identified as those born between 1982 and 1996, ages 20-34. The research population included an independent sample of 11,000 working Millennials equally balanced across age ranges and genders from 18 countries representing all regions. We also surveyed more than 8,000 ManpowerGroup Millennial associate employees and 1,500 hiring managers across 25 countries. Speaking to both groups gave us unique perspectives from both employers and employees. The fieldwork took place between February and April 2016. Participating countries included: Argentina, Austria, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, China, France, Germany, Greece, India, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Paraguay, Singapore, Serbia, Spain, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States.
